SwitchFix Isolator Lock / MCCB Lockout

  

SwitchFix is a switch lockout / circuit breaker lockout device.  The SwitchFix isolator lock provides locking facilities for switches and circuit breakers whose lockout facilities are either insufficient, poorly designed or damaged.  SwitchFix will only allow the switch or circuit breaker to be locked in the "OFF" position.   A locking device is typically applied to the following isolating equipment:

  • Switch handles

  • Disconnect handles

  • Moulded Case Circuit Breaker ( MCCB ) handles

Faulty or poorly designed isolation switch handles are potential killers.

Some isolator handles ( Holec , Siemens , Merlin Gerin ) appear locked in the "off" position, however the switch handle can be easily rotated to the "on" position with the isolator locking device in place.  This occurs due to a previous de-isolation with the switch handle locking clip extended.

Some circuit breaker handles ( Terasaki ) can be inadvertently locked in the "on" position as only 35 degrees, or 25mm MCCB handle rotation, differentiates the "on" and "off" positions.  Click here to view Newmont's Pajingo Gold Mine solution to this problem.

Replacing faulty switch handles with the same design is expensive and frustrating. The new isolator handle may be faulty again tomorrow.
